Anthony Joshua Knocks Out Wladimir Klitschko To Win WBA Heavyweight Title

Anthony Joshua produced a sterling performance of his career by knocking out Wladimir Klitschko in the 11th round to go 19-fight unbeaten and add the WBA world heavyweight title to his IBF crown at Wembley Stadium.

Joshua dropped Klitschko in the fifth round, before being put down for the first time in his career, in the sixth round in front of a post-war record 90,000 fans.

Klitschko later led on points despite the initial scare of going down but was dealt with clinical blows in the 11th round.

Joshua landed a brutal uppercut which allow him to send Klitschko down with an immediate flurry.

Klitschko was again dropped by a left hook again moments later, and then stood again, only for referee David Fields to rescue him when pinned against the ropes after a flurry of punches from Joshua.

Joshua had come through his stiffest test to date, while Klitschko had answered questions of his own, showing he is still competitive at world level, even at 41.

He will regret not finishing the job when he floored Joshua and came close to reclaiming two of the titles he lost in his last fight against Tyson Fury in 2015.
